unbelievable views day and night, cosy cottage. Lots of info on what to do in regards to coal mines and port Arthur. Had trouble using oven, wouldn’t heat properly no instructions, no big deal. No wifi which apparently they have in the main house, but not in cottage. Should be available so we can do the contact tracing as no service via mobile network with Vodafone. Still thoroughly enjoyed stay, loved the peace and quiet

The cottage was immaculate. Our hosts were welcoming and great communicators. There was a nice grassy area at the front for our boys to kick their ball. The area was lovely. And the price was very good. We would happily recommend.

This little cottage with the stunning views was clean and comfortable with everything we needed for a restful getaway. We would love to return in the summertime to experience the water activities via the boat and kayak provided. There is a designated parking spot (although a little tight for our camper van).

Hi Kelli, Thank you for taking the time to write a review and choosing to stay with us. We hope you come again and don't forget that we have complimentary use of our tandem sit on top Kayak. Just let us know at the time of booking if you wish to make use of it. Kind regards

The view from our charming little hideaway was stunning, it was so close to the water and so removed from traffic. It was very cosy and had everything we needed. We wish we had more time there but we enjoyed our stay all the same. The bed was very comfortable and one of the better ones we slept in on our trip in Tasmania.

I liked that it was out of town a bit and the walk on the beach over the road

Such a perfect place to stay. It was so quiet and relaxed and we managed to get 12 hours sleep on the first day of our holiday! Absolutely perfect and we’d definitely come back :)
